Michael Oehring is currently active in the Physical Metallurgy group of the Institute of Materials Research of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (formerly GKSS Research Centre) in Geesthacht, Germany. He studied physics at the Universities of Stuttgart and Göttingen and received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Göttingen, Germany, in 1988, where he stayed on for field-ion microscopy research at the Institute of Metal Physics until 1989. He then joined the applied physical metallurgy group of GKSS, where he remained until 1993. In the last 15 years, his research work has been centred on the development of gamma titanium aluminide alloys and their microstructural evolution during hot working and solidification. He received the Charles Hatchett Award in 2002 from the London Institute of Materials and has authored or coauthored over 100 papers as well as four patents.
